Watch this short video to see how key concepts and international mindedness are developed from early learning in the Primary Years Program (PYP) through the Middles Years Program (MYP) and Diploma Program (DP-11th and 12 grade).
key elements of ib learning
The Learner Profile is essential to every IB student's inquiry journey. These 10 traits are supported and developed in the PYP and MYP programs. Click here for ideas on implementing the Learner Profile at home.
SERVICE AS ACTION
Service is important for IB learners, as it helps students expand their learning and understanding outside of the classroom. Service can be anything from explaining ideas to a family member to completing a bigger service project. We specifically explore action in 5th grade with the Exhibition and in 8th grade with the Community Project. Click here to find ways to build service and take action in your daily lives!
The Inquiry Cycle is integral to teaching and learning during all parts of the IB program. Teacher work to inspire inquiry and encourage students to seek their own answers to questions that arise during units; then evaluate those answers and take action in their own life.
